GNU Aspell je korektor překlepů, který je možné používat buď jako samostatnou aplikaci, nebo jako knihovnu v jiných programech. Hlavní výhodou oproti ostatním korektorům (včetně Ispellu a Microsoft Wordu) jsou mnohem kvalitnější návrhy oprav (alespoň pro angličtinu). Oproti Ispellu má i další technické výhody jako používání sdílené paměti pro slovníky a inteligentnější zpracování osobních slovníků v případě, že máte spuštěn více než jeden proces Aspellu.

Aspell je navržen jako přímá náhrada za Ispell.

Dasher is an information-efficient text-entry interface, driven by natural continuous pointing gestures. Dasher is a competitive text-entry system wherever a full-size keyboard cannot be used - for example,

  • on a palmtop computer
  • on a wearable computer
  • when operating a computer one-handed, by joystick, touchscreen, trackball, or mouse
  • when operating a computer with zero hands (i.e., by head-mouse or by eyetracker).

The eyetracking version of Dasher allows an experienced user to write text as fast as normal handwriting - 25 words per minute; using a mouse, experienced users can write at 39 words per minute.

Dasher uses a more advanced prediction algorithm than the T9(tm) system often used in mobile phones, making it sensitive to surrounding context.

Tento balíček obsahuje klientskou aplikaci pro dotazování se dictd serveru. Protokol pro komunikaci klient-server je založen na TCP, server tedy může být lokální nebo přístupný prostřednictvím sítě.

DICT Development Group se stará o několik veřejných serverů, které jsou přístupné z libovolného počítače připojeného k internetu. Výchozí nastavení je dotazovat se nejprve jednoho z těchto severů. Toto nastavení můžete změnit v konfiguračním souboru /etc/dictd/dict.conf.

Dotazy mohou být přizpůsobeny mnoha volbami v příkazovém řádku, včetně zadání databáze(í), která má být dotazována a vyhledávací strategie, která má být použita.

Balíček také obsahuje skript dictl, díky kterému je možné použít slovníky s kódováním UTF-8 i na terminálech, které UTF-8 nepodporují.

GCompris is a high quality educational software suite, including a large number of activities for children aged 2 to 10. Some of the activities are game orientated, but nonetheless still educational.

This is a transitional package that depends on the new series of GCompris releases (rewritten using Qt). It can be safely removed once gcompris-qt is installed.

GNU nano is an easy-to-use text editor originally designed as a replacement for Pico, the ncurses-based editor from the non-free mailer package Pine (itself now available under the Apache License as Alpine).

However, GNU nano also implements many features missing in Pico, including:

  • undo/redo
  • line numbering
  • syntax coloring
  • soft-wrapping of overlong lines
  • selecting text by holding Shift
  • interactive search and replace (with regular expression support)
  • a go-to line (and column) command
  • support for multiple file buffers
  • auto-indentation
  • tab completion of filenames and search terms
  • toggling features while running
  • and full internationalization support
